New Router/Firewall Time! Juniper SRX 210

Michael Dale

We'll I've had my SSG 5 for about 2.5 years now and it has worked great, and will probably keep working for many years to come. But Juniper have released a new/replacement model (kind of, they're still selling the SSGs) that runs JunOS.

So I thought it was about time to learn the operating system as ScreenOS (OS on the SSG) will eventually be discontinued.

The SRX 210 is really more of a replacement to the SSG 20, but it looks there isn't a SSG 5 replacement (yet at least, I did see some mentions of an SRX 100).

Anyway hopefully I should get it next week and then I'll do a review of it.

Sorry it doesn't look like it.

I have found the SRX range to be unstable compared to the older SSG series. I currently have a JTAC support ticket I have open that I'd like to get fixed before the review is finished, but it has been 2 months without a fix.

At this stage I do not recommend the SRX series over the SSG range.

Just a quick update. JunOS 10.0R2.10 seems to have fixed most if not all of my major issues.
